Q: How do you see AMD’s view of the game console market? Are we headed to like one big year and then it sort of slows down? Is this the peak year, next year is a peak year? How do you manage that business knowing that it is such a consumer oriented? Yes, consumer but it is changing in terms of current game console products are doing very different things than what the prior generation did; that’s one thing...And by the way, based on what we see in particular with some developments that you probably read about related to the Chinese market in particular, we think 2015 is better than 2014. But the life cycle of the products are probably going to be shorter. Our customers are already thinking about what comes next. These are long life cycle products and as you know in the semi-custom space, you start with -- three years before you introduce a product, a decision is made to use a particular company. In this case it was AMD. And then you go ahead and co-develop the product with the funding dollars frankly, mostly coming from our customers.
